Yellow Mellon are a fashion forward online children’s clothing retailer and kindly offered to send my two children a complete outfit to try out. I know my daughter Miss M can be rather fussy, so provided details of their likes and dislikes, not knowing which items of clothing would be sent.
This is what we received from Yellow Mellon, presented beautifully in tissue wrapping, like a present waiting to be undone.
Miss M received a Minx denim jumpsuit, made from a lightweight, soft feel fabric. It has an elasticated waist and buttons down from the top to put on. She also received a simple, basic style vest top in bright pink to go underneath. At £12.49 for the jumpsuit and £1.99 for the vest top, I thought this was excellent value for the whole outfit.
When I first showed her the outfit, her eyes lit up, and she said ” I love it, can I try it on now?”. She likes to be comfortable in what she wears and tends to prefer trousers over skirts and dresses, so this outfit was right up her street!
We asked for a size 7-8, although she is only 6, as she is fairly tall and we tend to find a size up is always a better fit. The pink vest top is a very slim fit and Miss M actually struggled a little getting it on over her head and it didn’t leave much room around her body when on. Although it did have a soft feel and was comfortable, I would go a size up again if I was to buy one. The jumpsuit was the perfect length, and good fit around her. Miss M loved this outfit and found it really comfortable as all the fabric was soft and easy to wear. It is perfect for everyday wear during the summer and I can see this being worn many more times this year.
Mister B received a smart looking, collared polo shirt by Freaky, with two buttons to undo at the top. It features stripes in turquoise, grey, white and navy, which Mister B loved. This seems to be of a good quality and well made. It is a good thickness and suitable for year round wear. It also has a smarter look, being collared so suits many occasions. This was a very good fit and looked perfect on him. He also tried some Jeans from the Freaky range. These were also of a good quality and look really stylish. They were a good fit with an adjustable waist, they were a tiny bit long so we turned them up, but they still looked as good and give him something to grow into.
He also loved his outfit and seemed perfectly comfortable in this all day. I thought he looked smart and my first view of the outfit was that it was from a good brand and didn’t look cheap.
I think all the outfits we received were of a better quality than I expected, the clothes certainly all seem to be good value and the designs are all modern and fresh. Both my children were absolutely thrilled with their outfits which is also important to me and when they have something that is comfortable and they are happy to wear, then, then it makes for a happy family!
Yellow Mellon are a clothing company I hadn’t really heard of before and not sure I would have ordered from before trying these clothes. But seeing the great value isn’t a compromise on quality, then I would be more than happy to purchase from them in the future.
The company have been trading online since 2011, although have over 40 years experience in manufacturing and supplying children’s clothes. They cover a whole range of designs for 0-13 years, from wardrobe staples to partywear and as well as their own brands, Minx for girls, Freaky for boys, and they also sell a range of character products such as Disney (Frozen, princesses etc), Ben 10, Spiderman, Thomas and Hello Kitty.
Yellow Mellon are very trend led with some of their logo t-shirts for the older ages, which I’m not so keen on, but there are plenty of other plainer items that still feel fashionable, tutu skirts, party dresses, pretty woollen bolero cardigans and lots of accessories such as hairbands and bags. I also spotted some Disney Frozen pyjamas which I imagine would be a big hit with a lot of young girls right now!
All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and the clothes were sent to us in order to write the review.
